Zizzi's Sweet Pizza - say what?!









Last night I was invited to down to Zizzi to sample their new special dessert pizza - the first one they've launched. Apparently these bad boys are massive across the water. How I didn't have one whilst I was i NY i'll never know. It's drizzled in warm hazelnut chocolate sauce and topped with juicy strawberries and melted gooey marshmallows on a traditional crispy pizza base. It sounds like heaven eh? And it is! The moreish marshmallows were my favourite bit and really hit the spot paired with the almost caramelised strawberries. I was worried it would be a bit too sickly but I could easily have polished away one for myself - unfortunately I decided to share this with my boyfriend. Schoolboy error! If you have a sweet tooth, you won't want this dessert to end.

As for the rest of the meal, we both opted for a Rustica pizza which have the best bases out of the pizzas in my opinion. I plumped for Rustica Primavera - a delicious pesto, goats cheese, aubergine, artichokes, olives, rocket and mozzarella concoction. The very generous helping of pesto helped it go down a treat!

I'd just like to say a massive thank you to the staff at the Chelmsford branch who were all absolutely lovely!

Have you tried the sweet pizza yet? It's a must-try!

Today I ventured a little bit further away from home and spent the day in Norwich with my mum and nan. I snuck on the old people bus and gatecrashed for the day. We had a little wander around the city centre, up to the castle, window shopped and rounded off the day eating our weight in pasta and cheese at Bella Italia. Not bad for a Saturday! I'm looking forward to binge watching netflix and slobbing out in my pajamas tonight. Rock and roll eh?

Have you been up to anything exciting today?

I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright




Outfit:
Black chiffon vest top: Topshop (similar)
Textured floral midi skirt: Primark (similar)
Light wash denim jacket: Primark (similar)
Nude block heeled sandals: Dorothy Perkins c/o Westfield (similar)
Fif Lapin phone case: c/o Iconemesis

I'm starting to feel like i'm getting a bit repetitive with my outfits. Midi skirt, denim jacket and sandals. Romeo done. But this is what I feel most comfortable in during the summer months and well if it isn't broken... I wore this out last weekend to spend the day in London stuffing my face at Big Easy with friends and travelling high on the Emirates Air Line. Quite a good way to spend a Saturday especially when it ended with a mini bar crawl around Shoreditch. Although our food babies made it quite difficult to give the end aspect of the day the attention it needed.

I was sent this cute phone case as part of Iconemesis' new campaign with Indiegogo. It's a special page where brands present their bright ideas on the web and cross their fingers for investment so they can expand their business. One is these brands is Iconemesis themsleves!
